I’m sorry about the total silence here on The Developer’s Corner (though I have been continuing to write on my other blog) but there really hasn’t been much to write about. Sinsolis did a fantastic set of icons for the new toolbar items in Blog and I should thank him for being so kind all the time but I haven’t even had the time to use them yet in Blog since I’ve been so busy with other things. At the same time, development was stuck anyway for a while now because I’ve run into certain problems with the WPTools component. It does a fantastic job of being a WYSIWYG HTML editor component but has problems with certain things like inserting hyperlinks or images – it does those well enough but doesn’t leave room for customization. For instance, I want to let the user specify a target for a hyperlink but the method provided by WPTools to insert a hyperlink does not allow this. So I’m trying to find a workaround but being short of time means that I’m not making much progress. I’m sure I’ll get to it eventually but till then, I can only ask for your patience …
